    He's a felon that was in possession of a firearm. This equals... FAIL.

    What if he had'nt been armed?

    What then? Does his prior conviction prevent him from defending himself?

    (Flamesuit on).

    Obviously not.

    But, just as obviously, there WILL be consequences.

    When did it become illeagle for a felon to own a gun?
    Just curious, because to my knowledge it wasnt when I was a kid in the 60's & 70's.

    If they are ok to be out of prison and own a car, knife, pencil, or X why should an inanimate object matter???

    Felons should be allowed guns. Why? If the bad ones want one, they're going to get one. Period!

    The Gun Control Act of 1968 outlawed possession of a firearm or ammunition to anyone who has been convicted of a "crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year" which includes many state misdemeanors as well as felonies. The thing is that there is an exception state designated misdemeanors with penalties less than 2 years. People tend to just shorten that to felonies, though. If you find a 2.5 year penalty available for a misdemeanor, it would qualify for the ban.

    He can defend himself...just not with a gun. He could have used a staff, a baseball bat, his hands and fists (if he were Oriental - for fans of They Called Me Bruce).

    Off topic :

    My former HR director got on my case because I referred to myself as Oriental (only half Japanese anyways). She said I could get into trouble because I have to call myself Asian. I stared at her and said I'm only talking about myself and calling myself Oriental as I've done all my life. She said it didn't matter. I'm Asian and not Oriental. :shocked:

    Ok to go back on topic now.

    I should have told her I wasn't half Japanese, I was half Okinawan but I didn't want her head to explode. :rofl:

    I have no sympathy for him. If you choose to commit crimes, become a felon, you know full and well you give up your right to firearms. The choice is ultimately up to the person. Be a good and upstanding citizen, enjoy your guns! He definitely has the right to defend himself like everyone, but not with firearms.

    No flaming here. If the guy is out of prison, then he should be able to own a gun (and vote, etc.). He's paid his debt. If he's too dangerous to be allowed to own a gun, he should still be locked up. I've never understood this.

    I'm on you all's side. If Charlie Manson is paroled tomorrow, he should be able to walk into a gun store and buy one, no questions asked. Except perhaps how do you want to pay for this, cash or card?

    Now if he violently misuses it, then burn him or lock him up, throw the key away, and weld the door shut.
